The Fire and Explosion Modelling (FMEG) group in the School of Mechanical 
Engineering Sciences is seeking a Research Fellow to work on pan European 
by Horizon Europe, NHyRA aims to develop methodologies to quantify potential 
anthropogenic hydrogen releases along the entire hydrogen value chain. The 
results will inform the assessment the impact of anthropogenic hydrogen releases 
on climate, which is the aim of another EU project. 

About the role

New or adequately adapted experimental, theoretical, and simulation 
methodologies will be validated in NHyRA to perform laboratory or in-field 
measurements to achieve the project goal. The Research Fellow will work under 
the supervision of the Surrey PI, Professor Jennifer Wen, to deliver Surry’s 
contribution to the project. The researcher will conduct CFD simulations to 
validate the measurement/analysis methods of the partners and estimate 
anthropogenic hydrogen emissions that cannot be directly measured. He/she will 
also need to develop efficient methods to evaluate the overall H2 emission rates 
from measurements and analysis conducted by other partners.  

This is a full-time post, which should start as soon as possible but with a 
fixed end date of 31 December 2026. For an informal discussion about the post 
please contact Prof. Jennifer Wen; Information about research 
activities at FMEG can be found at

About you

We are looking for a researcher with a doctoral degree in a relevant discipline 
(although individuals who have almost completed a doctoral degree may be 
appointed).  Experience in CFD simulations for both non-reactive and reactive 
flows will be essential. Candidates with experience of OpenFOAM will be 

About us

The School of Mechanical Engineering Sciences is part of the Faculty of 
Engineering and Physical Sciences. The Department, and its degree programmes, 
are rated in the top 10 in the UK league tables and top 100 in the Shanghai 
Global Ranking of Academic Subjects. The overarching research drivers are 
centred around resilience, green living and living well with its highly rated 
research carried out in four Centres: Aerodynamics & Environmental Flow (A&EF), 
Automotive Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Engineering Materials.


In addition to salary the successful post holder will receive a generous annual 
leave entitlement, excellent development opportunities and access to childcare 
assistance. Some flexible home working is supported but attendance at our campus 
in Guildford will be necessary some of the time.
